The Blessed Mother And James White

I find it quite amusing that James White is once again mocking God and His plan of salvation in regards to the Theotokos. Go check out his latest rants on his blog site against Tim Staples and Patrick Madrid on the Christian teaching regarding the Blessed Mother. White is an embarrassment to apologetics. If you look at my latest 3 videos you can see how Mr. White uses props to hold up his false arguments. Once again lets look at White and his mockery regarding the Blessed Mother.

1. Does the term co-mediatrix or co-redemtrix imply we are equating Mary as a fourth person of the Trinity? Obviously not, because the term does not imply anything of the sort. Co means with. If Mary participated in God's plan of salvation, (which anyone who would deny this fact cannot call themselves a Christian) then she can be titled obviously a co-redemptrix, because she participated in God's plan. I will say this plainly, it seems that White is just (pardon my French) too damn stupid to understand what co means. Aside from all of this, this terminology has not been defined by the church as of yet. But White is great at crying wolf. Does anyone remember his asinine blog video of him telling us all that Rome was about to remove the excommunication of Martin Luther and reform him a few months back? He probably hopes that everyone has forgotten that foolish post.

2. White says that it is blasphemous to ask the Blessed Mother to pray for us, to intercede for us. Is it? Then I ask why in the world does every ancient Liturgy have petitions to her? You see, White knows that when it comes to the Church and her Liturgies he has no defense of for his outlandish heretical rants. The Liturgies of the Church show us plainly that Christians of the early centuries gave the Blessed Theotokos praise, and they asked for her intercession.

Livias in the 6th century wrote, "Raised to heaven, she remains for the human race an unconquerable rampart, interceding for us before her Son and God." Theoteknos of Livias, Assumption 291(ante AD 560),in THEO,187

3. What about the early Church regarding Mary's sinlessness and giving prasie to her, and calling upon her? Wow, I thought no one "prayed" to her in the early Church?

"O Virgin all holy, he who has said of you all that is honorable and glorious has not sinned against the truth, but remains unequal to your merit. Look down upon us from above and be propitious to us. Lead us in peace and having brought us without shame to the throne of judgment, grant us a place at the right hand of your Son, that we may borne off to heaven and sing with angels to the uncreated, consubstantial Trinity" Basil of Seleucia, PG 85:452(ante AD 459)

Now lets also call out James White on his video regarding the liturgy and Transubstantiation in which I posted responses to a few months back? I flat out called him on his erroneous conclusions he formed from his "12 century" arguments on the tabernacle, the host elevation etc. He loves to attack Catholics and mock them on his blog and his radio show, yet he cannot defend his own foolish arguments. Where is he and his arrogant response on this? We are waiting. In fact even some of his fans have expressed a perplexed attitude towards his refusal to acknowledge my video posts. We all know why don't we? When you can't defend your erroneous arguments, then you do not answer.
